YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. -- Catawba built a solid halftime lead then held off host Young Harris to take a 17-16 win in women's lacrosse action on Tuesday afternoon at the YHC Soccer and Lacrosse Field.  Caroline Beggs (St. Johns, Fla./Bartram Trail HS) and  Alyssa Corace (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac HS) combined to score nine goals to help the Catawba Indians improve to 8-7.  The Mountain Lions fall to 9-5.

A 6-2 run over the final 11:05 of the first half put Catawba on top 12-7 at the break.  The first half surge included a four-goal spurt in a span of two and a half minutes that made it 10-5.  Corace scored back-to-back midway through the second half to give the Lady Indians a 15-10 lead with 17:43 left.

Young Harris scored three of the next four goals, but Meredith Jones (Barnesville, Md./St. John's Catholic HS) scored a man-up goal with 4:53 remaining to put Catawba up 17-13.  The Mountain Lions staged a late rally starting with Katie McNutt's goal with 1:08 to go.  Nicole Kernohan scored 12 seconds later and Ivey Franklin cut it to a single goal margin with nine seconds left.  Young Harris won the final draw control, but could not get off a shot.

Catawba fell behind 3-0 at the start then reeled off six of the next seven goals to lead 6-4.  Beggs scored at the 23:07 mark and again with 8:39 to go in the half which started and finished an 8-1 run for the 10-5 lead.

Beggs finished with five goals and an assist for the Lady Indians.  Corace added four goals, while Jones scored two goals with three helpers.  Megan Shortt (Kernersville, N.C./E. Forsyth HS) and Kirsten Kruse (Sagamore Beach, Mass./Williston Northampton Prep) each had a pair of goals.  Bethany Davis (Salisbury, Md./Parkside HS) stopped 16 shots in goal.

Nicole Kernohan picked up four goals for Young Harris.  McNutt scored three goals.  Amanda Kernohan delivered two goals with three assists and Jaclyn Kernohan added two goals with two helpers.

Young Harris held a 37-34 edge in shots with a 20-11 advantage in the second half.  The Mountain Lions also won 11 of the 15 draw controls in the second half.  Catawba led the way in ground balls by a 49-36 margin.

The Lady Indians wrap up the regular season with a trip to Lenoir-Rhyne on Saturday for a 4 pm contest.
